Prognostic significance of PRAME (preferentially expressed antigen of melanoma) expression in breast cancer


Purpose: The aim of this study is to detect the PRAME (Preferentially Expressed Antigen of Melanoma) in 54 patients with breast cancer and 37 patients with benign breast lesions. Materials and Methods: PRAME expressions in 54 breast cancer, 20 benign breast lesions and 10 normal breast tissue samples were studied with RT-PCR. Expression of PRAME was studied with IHC in 37 benign breast lesions, in 54 breast cancer patients from both tumor and normal breast tissue. RT-PCR and IHC results for PRAME were compared in this study. Results: PRAME was found to be expressed in 50 % of the breast cancer and 25 % of the benign breast lesions. Using IHC method, (+), (++) and (+++) staining for PRAME expression were found in 29,6%, 31,5% and 3,7% of the cases, respectively in invasive component of the breast cancer. PRAME expression detected by both IHC and RT-PCR was compared with prognostic parameters. PRAME expression in breast cancer was found to be associated with high tumor grade and negative hormone receptor. We found an important association between PRAME RT-PCR and of PRAME IHC. Conclusion: Both RT-PCR in fresh tissues and IHC method in paraffin embedded tissues can be used to identify PRAME expression and the predictive role of PRAME expression.
